Destination » Destinacija | 107 5. THE SOGNEFJORD ALL FJORDS INONE The Sognefjord is called “the king of the fjords” for many reasons. It has a superior location and, as the longest of Norway’s fjords, extends more than 200 kilometres into the country and measures 1,308metres at its deepest point. The Sognefjord is also among the widest fjords and has numerous side arms that are far narrower than the main fjord. Length: 204 kilometres 6. THE GEIRANGERFJORD WALLS OFWATERFALLS The Geirangerfjord is also included on the UNESCO list of world heritage sites and is often said to be the most dazzling of the fjords. Visitors are enchanted by its almost vertical mountainsides embellished with numerous waterfalls and topped by snow-capped mountain peaks that look like gigantic ice cream cones throughout the entire year. Three waterfalls are particularly well known: De syv søstrene (The Seven Sisters), Friaren (The Suitor) and Brudesløret (The Bridal Veil). Length: 15 kilometres 8. THE TROLLFJORD FILM LOCATION The Trollfjord measures only about 100metres at its narrowest point, but in the summer it is still frequented daily by cruise ships. In 2016 the Trollfjord received a lot of international attention when the American filmDownsizing, starring Matt Damon, was filmed here. Length: 3 kilometres 9. THE ROMSDALSFJORD ROCK AND ROAM The Romsdal area is known for its diverse nature. While the western part is dominated by coastal landscape with lots of islets, the inner part consists of long fjords and steep mountains. Three well known tourist attractions in this area include the winding mountain road Trollstigen, the Rampestreken viewing point above the city of Åndalsnes and the hiking route across Romsdalsegge ridge. Another attraction is Kirketaket Mountain, which has been voted one of Norway’s top mountains for skiing. Length: 88 kilometres 10. THE NÆRØYFJORD UNESCO BRANCH The Nærøyfjord is listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO. It has narrow passages (only about 250metres wide in some places), and is surrounded by steep mountainsides and flowing waterfalls. In the middle of this dramatic scenery you can see small, traditional farms and other dwellings nestled on the hillsides along the fjord. Length: 18 kilometres iStock / Elena - Studio iStock / rusm
